Tarantulas: I want... to ask you... the question... one more time.
Prowl: My answer's not going to—
Tarantulas: [screaming into his face] If you say no, I will see you destroyed, as I was! Not physically, but mentally, emotionally! All you've worked for — all you've lived for; toppled over for the vulture to feast on, just because you denied me! I have felt true loss Prowl. And I want you to be alive and aware and cogent to feel it too. Ostaros I miss terribly but he could never have happened without you, and nothing like him will ever happen again without you either!
Prowl: My God, Tarantulas...
Tarantulas: WILL YOU JOIN ME?
[long pause]
Prowl: My answer... is still no.
[a black prison box immediately slams down around Prowl, trapping him]
Tarantulas: I hope you're telling the truth, Prowl...

I have been looking for you for a long time, love, but it's always this way. You always try to escape me, always try to leave me, and you never stay, never, and I don't understand why. I love you best. I always loved you best, even when you didn't remember my name: you'll remember me eventually, won't you? No one else will ever love you as much as or the way I love you.

Asuna: What the hell d'you think you were doing back there?
Lizbeth: What? I don't-
Asuna: Shhhhshhhshhhshhh. No talking. Just listening. Because you're my friend, I'm giving you one warning - Kirito. Is off. Limits. If I see you try something like that again, I WILL come for you. And you of all people know how sharp my blade is. Are we clear?

"I'm offering you a choice. If you take me, I'll go easy on you in the ring. If you don't—" She gave Kara as venomous a look as she'd ever seen, and the heroine replayed all the cliches she'd heard about a woman scorned. "If you don't, I promise you twenty-five minutes of sheer hell. And you know I can deliver. Now, what'll it be? Ecstasy— or agony?"

Possessive? Check.
Protective? Violently so.
Borderline homicidal? Pretty sure she passed that line a ways back.
Deranged? Refer to her encounter with Jason.
Hm... yeah, I'd say she is. She just usually hides it pretty well.

"Creepy" Connie, Jessie

There's a spark in your eye
And a grin on your lips
She's a demon and I can't resist her
On a night like this

Say that you're fine
But I know that you're a wreck
There's a chill up my spine
With your hands around my neck

Handcuffed to your side
I know that I can't leave
I'm fixated on asphyxiation
But without you I can't breathe

I want to mix our blood
And put it in the ground
So you can never leave
I want to earn your trust
Your faith, your heart
You'll never be deceived

The judge said, "this man's a danger to humanity,
We're gonna lock him up and throw away the key!"

But I'd rather die than see you with another man!
Bad Company, "Burnin' Sky"

Well I'd rather see you dead, little girl
Than to be with another man
You better keep your head, little girl
Or I won't know where I am

You better run for your life if you can, little girl
Hide your head in the sand little girl
Catch you with another man
That's the end'a little girl
The Beatles, "Run for your life"

Say that you want me every day
That you want me every way
That you need me

Feel the pain getting bigger
Go insane from the bitter feeling
Trippin' super psycho love

Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do,
I'm half crazy all for the love of you.

Time cast a spell on you, but you won't forget me
I know I could have loved you, but you would not let me
I'll follow you down til' the sound of my voice will haunt you
(Give me just a chance)
You'll never get away from the sound of the woman that loved you
Fleetwood Mac, "Silver Springs"

I can't use what I can't abuse
And I can't stop when it comes to you...
You burned me out, but I'm back at your door
Like Joan of Arc coming back for more
I nearly died (3x)
I came to cut you up
I came to knock you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
I came to shut you up
I came to drag you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
And break your soul apart
Garbage, "Vow"

Crept through the curtains, as quick as the cold wind
Slowly exploring the room where you sleep
The stare of your portrait, the passing of your scent
Left me no choice but to stay
I will dissolve into the dark beneath your bed
My hands will wait for a taste of your skin
The Hush Sound, "Sweet Tangerine"

Baby, I love you so much... Don't make me kill you.
Kesha, "Hunt You Down"

Come now, surely we can be friends
I know so much about you
I love you, look at everything I've done for you
You'd be nothing without me!

I bet you're busy talking to some fucking slut.
Fucking skank... Is she hotter than me?
Would you fuck me? Are you gay!?
You blocked me on Facebook, and now you're going to die!
Knife Party, "Internet Friends"

If you would sit
Oh so close to me
That would be nice
Like it's supposed to be
If you don't, I'll slit your throat
So won't u please b nice?
Nellie McKay, "Won't U Please B Nice"

Carved your name across three counties
Ground it in with bloody hides
Their broken necks will line the ditch
Till you stop it- stop it- stop it- stop it- stop it
Stop this madness
I want you...
Neko Case, "This Tornado Loves You"

Your attitude was the cause; you got me stressin'
Soon as I open up the door, with your jealous questions
Like "Where can I be?" You're killing me with your jealousy
Now my ambition's to be free, I can't breathe
Cause soon as I leave, it's like a trap
I hear you callin' me to come back...
Tupac Shakur, "Do For Love"

If you were here
I'd whisper sweet nothings in your ear
And appeal to all your fears
If you were mine, if you were only mine
I'd bring you so much further down
And twist your mind until the end of time
You will never realise what darkness lies inside my mind
Sirenia, "My Mind's Eye"

I was the whining stranger
A fool in love
With time to kill
Steely Dan, "My Rival"

I yearn for your love,
I yearn for your blood.
The blaze in my heart
lies deep as roots in this ground.
Take me into you,
take my hand, or I'll kill again.
Swallow The Sun, "Hate, Lead The Way"

Remember I will always love you,
As I claw your fucking throat away.
It will end no other way.
tool, "Pushit"

Up late night like she on patrol
Checkin' everything like I'm on parole
I told her there's some things she don't need to know
She never let it go
Okay, okay... OKAY, okay!
You need to stop it now...
... You're like the girl from Misery.
She said she ain't take it to this degree.
Well, let's agree to disagree.
Kanye West, "RoboCop"

I heard the news today
That you're not mine to keep
Don't struggle too much now
While I kill you in your sleep
What is lust if it's not beating by yourself?
I won't be gentle to the body on the shelf
Odesza, "It's Only"

I'd rather see you in a hearse than see you with some other bitch
Cardi B's verse on "Rodeo" by Lil Nas X

Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
I'll be watching you

Oh can't you see
You belong to me
How my poor heart aches
With every step you take
The Police, "Every Breath You Take"note 

Come cryin’ to me now, baby
Your future’s in an oblong box, yeah
Come cryin’ to me, oh baby
Should’ve seen it was coming on
Come crying to me now, baby
Had to know it was in your palm
Come crying to me now, baby
Dead end zone for a dead end girl
Come crying to me now, baby
And now your life drains on the floor
Come crying to me now, baby
The Misfits, "Die, Die My Darling"

Why... are you... sleeping with my woman?
Why... are you... sleeping with my woman?
I'm telling you what's on my mind
I'm 'bout to go get my nine
And kill both of y'all's behind
Why... are you... bleeding so much?
Why... are you... bleeding so much?
D'Angelo, "Shit, Damn, Motherfucker"

She's buried right in my backyard

You just don’t know it yet,
But you love me and I love you the same

And I’ll be your everything,
We’ll be together, yes forever
We will never, ever part
Oh, you don’t know it yet,
But baby, I’ve already got your heart!

But you can't escape my love

when he said he’d set her free

to bring down her ancient reef

now you belong to me."

Sometimes, Adorjan falls in love. Her hate is safer.
— Manual of Exalted Power: Infernals

For all intents and purposes, Edith is a partly crazy undead automaton whose only focus in this world is Eddie Lansdale. She loves him enough to have sex with him (whether he wants it or not), and she loves him enough to make him three square meals a day (even if getting him to eat those meals means holding his shriveled face against the plate until he licks it clean). She pursues her love of Eddie quite aggressively, and sees any persistent visitors as ne'er-do-wells who need to be purged from this mortal coil. Any perceived threats are met with Edith's rather unusual physical prowess.
Mysterious Places, "The Swimming Hole"

Nosferatu's lost love, Arikel, created the Toreador, and apparently they've pitied us ever since. Isn't that beautiful? I heard this story from a rather handsome storyteller, and he still repeats the story faithfully to me each night. You see, I've nailed him to a cross in my haven and kept him fed with my vitae every night. He will love me forever, as Arikel and Nosferatu never did.

The most important thing in a Sentinel's life is her beloved, but the only thing in a Warden’s life is her beloved.
Wardens have no interest in anything that isn’t related to their beloved: they go home to an empty house and sit on a bare floor watching the phone and the clock until they can have another chance to see their love. The family she tells him about when they next meet lie dead in the basement.

When you’re gone / I'll go mad
So don't throw away this thing we had
Cuz when push comes to shove
I will kill your friends and family
To remind you of my love.
King George III, Hamilton

I was meant to be yours.
We were meant to be one.

I am all that you need.
You carved open my heart!
Can't just leave me to bleed!

To my dearest, Travis the Great.
Hi there Travis the Great. I am the girl who loves you the most in the entire world. But in order to prove that I'm your #1 fan, I need some kind of evidence. Because no matter how much I insist that I'm your #1, any other chick or bitch can approach you and say the exact same thing. That is why I've decided. That I should become strong. By doing so I knew that someday, I'd be able to get closer to you. Putting my title as Travis the Great's #1 fan is on the line. I embarked on this path... And ended up winning the National Student Assassin championship. I really did my best! But you know, in hindsight it was a cinch. I guess I'm just blessed... I could master in one day techniques that would take others years to do. Pretty awesome, right? And then, I got greedy, a new urge, a vision. That just maybe I could win a fight against Travis the Great. Now my goal is to behead Travis the Great. Therefore surpassing my hero. Oops, did I actually write that... It's kinda embarrassing, you know. Well anyways, I've made up my mind. I made an oath. I won't be killed by anyone! I shall defeat Travis the Great in battle! Only then will Travis the Great be mine and mine only.
Love, Travis the Great's #1 fan,

If only Bentley hadn't been brainwashed by Cooper's "honorable thief" nonsense. We could have made billions in weapon designs! The two most brilliant minds on the planet working together?

Timpani... After you vanished, I searched long for you. I never stopped looking. I searched and searched, but I never found you. Without you, the world held no meaning or joy. So I used the forbidden prophecy of the Tribe of Ancients to end all worlds. I wanted to destroy everything that had taken you away from me...

I'm not ready for this to end. I'm not ready for you to leave. I'm not ready to say goodbye to someone like you again... So, please... STOP doing this... AND JUST LET ME WIN!!!

There is nothing I won't do for Senpai. I won't let anyone come between us. I don't care what I have to do. I don't care who I have to hurt. I don't care whose blood I have to spill.

Why? What have I done wrong? In his letters he talks about her. A "tutor". He says he loves me. But SHE sees him. I get letters, while SHE gets his time. He is MINE. Once his studies are finished I will have him back.
He is coming back. Just one weekend. A short holiday, from HER. I will convince him to stay. I CANNOT let my love leave again.

You see, Kenshin's got a unique way of treating the things important to him. He's actually quite caring, but somewhere along the line, that got turned around into his current, twisted definition of love. It's thinking he'd rather kill something than let it go that makes it worse.

Torg (thinking): Wait a minute! Just because Oasis is a gymnastic martial-arts assassin killer-robot that's been programmed to be madly in love with me doesn't mean she'd kill anyone I liked out of jealousy! Did I just let Zoë get hurt for no reason?
Oasis: What kind of cone would you like, Torgy?
Torg: Chocolate. I LOVE chocolate ice-cream!
Ice Cream Vendor: Good Lord, she's killing the chocolate ice-cream! I didn't even know you could kill chocolate ice-cream!

Acktreal Domma: "Please don't leave me! I love you! I'm going to eat your every organ, and your bones...."
Though there is no truly good way for a machine to be in love with someone, the armor unfortunately doesn't love Tony in a ground-worshipping, "I'll do anything" kind of way, but more in a "mine, mine, MINE!" kind of way.

And what kind of guy would stay with someone who just slew a dozen of his unborn children? The kind who's scared out of his fucking mind, that's who. He probably figures that if this crazy bitch has no compunctions about slaughtering innocent yolklings then she might just murder the crap out of him too. The whole system is about him getting matched up with the meanest, most efficient death machine in a forest full of bloodthirsty she-bitches. Yeah, settling down and raising a family is probably his only option here. Makes perfect sense, Nature.
